Unusual Starling ? (1 Viewer)

Hi All
have had a really 'oily' starling on my bird table this morning with next to no spots.
Realise its unlikely to be a spotless not least because of how sedentary they are, just wondering if anyone has seen similer birds in UK ?
Havnt really got to grips with this individual yet and light is pretty poor here but would say any spots are on lower/bottom half of bird. Hope to get better description and/or pic if it returns.
Any comments would be appreciated
Thanks
Geoff

It would be hard to comment without pics; though did you note the leg colour tone?
Starlings from the east of their range can be less 'spotty' :t:
